Hotel deals close soon, but early bird registration extended. Don't forget to register for Workshops

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The early bird registration has been extended until the 15th October.  There won’t be an extension after this, so don't miss out on the great discounts for what promises to be one of the most excitingly informative Sound and Audiovisual archiving conferences in recent years.

Tour of the Library of Congress' Packard Campus for Audio-Visual Conservation at Culpeper, Virginia

Another good reason to come Philadelphia for IASA and AMIA’s annual conference. On Monday, November 8 (after the conference) join a tour of this exciting new facility for Audiovisual Archives. The Library of Congress built the new Audio-Visual Conservation facility in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Culpeper, Virginia to care for what is generally considered the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of films, television programs, radio broadcasts, and sound recordings. This is clearly one of the landmark developments of recent times in our industry and it champions the factory preservation of large collections.

IASA AMIA 2010 Conference Keynote

We are very lucky to have Anthony Seeger (UCLA) as our keynote at IASA this year. His paper is entitled “Before Convergence Was Divergence: Putting Humpty Dumpty Together Again” and in it he will examine convergence, the assumed foundation of much of our digital approaches, from a different aspect. Tony will focus our thinking about convergence using the lens of “one or two total events”. You will find his abstract on Wednesday of the programme.
